Not a big fan of old churches, but this one was pretty neat to go through. A relative of mine was married here in 1820, so that's why I visited. If you like seeing things like this, i...

Bath Abbey | Museum/Attraction Review | Bath | Frommers.com
Built on the site of a much larger Norman cathedral, the present-day abbey is a fine example of the late Perpendicular style. When Queen Elizabeth I came to Bath in 1574, she ordered a national fund to be set up to restore the abbey. The west front is the sculptural embodiment of a Jacob's Ladder dr...

Bath Abbey, Bath - Bath venue review - Itchy Bath Guide
Push past the group of exchange students cluttering up the doorway and take a peek at the fantastic stained glass windows on the far wall. They will, of course, ask you for a suggested donation of £2 but muttering something about Jesus throwing the money lenders out of the temple usually slows...

Begun on the site of an earlier abbey in 1499, this abbey soars. A series of flying buttresses on each side divide five large light windows. As with many churches this size, the exterior is as much an architectural wonder as the interior. Witness the wonderful stone carving of ascending and descendi...

Bath Abbey - Bath - Sightseeing - QYPE
Its restoration in 1864 finally saw these elements finished to their original design, under the sure hand of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott. The result is a feast of perpendicular architecture, with spectacular fan vaults and those huge panel windows. This is not to everyone's taste - it has been likened t...

The West front depicts the dream that inspired the Abbeys founder Bishop Oliver King, to pull down the ruined Norman Cathedral and raise the present building on its foundations. 3 different ...
